Skipper talks

“We have chased a lot better than what we have set this year, so that’s one of the reasons for bowling first. I love it, the fact that Gujarat put a bit of pressure on us by winning their game. Parshavi is coming in today,” Alyssa Healy said after winning the toss.

“This is something new I am experiencing, I am sure MI team is getting used to this now (losing the toss). We would have batted first anyway. Same XI for us. We are keeping things simple, just want to enjoy ourselves,” Harmanpreet Kaur said.
